HAPPY HIBISCUS MATÉ

Whole Leaf Tea Infused with Certified Organic Cannabis

The organic hibiscus blooms in our Happy Hibiscus Maté Whole Leaf Tea add a bright blush pink and a lemony-cranberry splash to your elevated tea time. 

HIBISCUS

The history of hibiscus takes us back to ancient Egypt and through several millennia to China where it was used for both industrial and medicinal purposes[1]. Hibiscus tea is known for its unforgettable color and flavour, and it’s also packed with powerful plant-based antioxidants including flavonoids and tannins[2]. Antioxidants are molecules that protect your body against free radical damage to cells. Consuming an adequate amount of antioxidants can help support a healthy lifestyle and may boost your immune system[3].

YERBA MATÉ

Yerba maté is a traditional and ever-popular South American drink that has been enjoyed for hundreds of years. Drinking maté is said to symbolize hospitality and friendship, and it is commonly sipped in groups or while walking the streets[4]. It has been used for its potential to boost mental focus and improve energy levels, as well as enhance physical performance[5]. On its own, it has a strong, earthy flavour profile featuring a bit of bitterness.

CACAO

Cacao has its roots in the New World, Olec, Maya, and Mexica (Aztec), where it was considered a ‘food of the gods’ and as valuable as money[6]. That’s because it was traditionally used for its medicinal properties such as fighting fatigue. It was brought to Europe in the 1500s whereby manuals for the therapeutic uses of cacao started being written[7]. In its raw form, cacao has quite a bitter flavour profile. The flavonoids contributing to this flavour are antioxidants that protect cells against free radical damage[8].

 

ZEN GREEN SENCHA

Whole Leaf Tea Infused with Certified Organic Cannabis

Every sip of our Zen Green Sencha Whole Leaf Tea provides a perfect blend of organic green superfoods to support your whole body health. 

SENCHA

Organic sencha green tea is also known as Japanese green tea. In Japan, it’s sipped throughout the day and served warm. It is said to be energizing without being overly stimulating[9]. It has a refreshing flavour whose profile can be described as vegetal or grassy. It’s also naturally low in caffeine and can be enjoyed both hot or iced. 

LIQUORICE

Liquorice roots are native to Europe and Asia and have been used for centuries as both food and medicine. It’s said that early Egyptians loved the root, and it’s also known as a popular ingredient in Chinese herbal medicine[10]. We’ve added just the right touch of organic premium liquorice for its natural sweetness.

MORINGA

Moringa is an aromatic flowering tree that is native to northwestern India. It is sometimes called the “Tree of Life” or the “Miracle Tree” because of its many important economic and dietary uses. The tree flowers within six months and grows up to 20 feet per year[11]. Each part of the moringa plant can be harvested and used for human and animal nutrition, making it both a versatile and sustainable crop. It’s nutrient-rich properties including α- and β-carotenes enhance our chances of maintaining and achieving a healthy lifestyle[12]. Expect a slightly bitter but matcha-y taste with vegetal notes.

TULSI

Tulsi ‘holy’ basil has been used in Ayurveda medicine for many health reasons, including its adaptogenic properties that may help with fighting the effects of stress[13]. It is said that within this holistic healing tradition, tulsi is revered as “The Incomparable One,” the “Mother Medicine of Nature,” and “Queen of the Herbs.[14]” This ancient herb has a hot and bitter taste.

 

RESTFUL CHAMOMILE

Whole Leaf Tea Infused with Certified Organic Cannabis

Unwind with a tea time meant to lull away the day’s stresses and help you get a good night’s rest.

CHAMOMILE & LAVENDER

Chamomile and lavender flowers have both been used for thousands of years, and their popularity together in tea remains strong today. They make the base of this beautiful yellow and purple sweet floral blend. 

Chamomile is one of the oldest used herbs for medicine. Its unique terpenes, flavonoids, and other plant compounds have been well-documented for supporting human health including helping with relaxation[15].   

Our premium organic lavender flowers are selected to further support relaxation and contribute to overall wellbeing. Historically, lavender flowers have been used to protect against evil spirits and bring good luck and fortune[16]. They have also been used by doctors and healers across eras and continents for their powerful plant compounds that contribute to recovery from injury and illness[17].

In our Restful Chamomile Whole Leaf Tea, you can also find organic cinnamon with its characteristic spicy taste profile. Cinnamon has also been highly sought after ever since the Arabs journeyed it to Europe in the Middle Ages. At that time, cinnamon was associated with a status symbol due to limitations and supply restrictions[18].

ANISE

Anise seed is native to Egypt (at least 4,000 years of cultivation[19]). It has been used commercially since the 1800s. When crushed, these seeds have an aromatic presence so alluring that they have become the base of many parfum oils. They have also been used for their licorice-like and hot taste, making them a great flavouring ingredient. Historically they have been used in their crushed form for digestive and immune system issues[20].

We selected the premium organic ingredients you’ll find inside each biodegradable tea sachet for these rich histories of helping humans. So whether you’re looking to relax, energize, or chill out, there’s a traditional tea blend with a modern twist to match the mood.

The Green Organic Dutchman is committed to providing premium organic cannabis products grown in living soil.
